Ann MacArthur

Ann MacArthur received a Bachelors in East Asian Studies and a master’s in International Management. Her passion for the arts of Asia flourished at the Art Gallery of New South Wales where for over two decades she was an innovator in audience engagement. Drawing on a wide range of resources from academia to community groups, Ann created a rich program of events including the Arts of Asia lecture series, symposia, religious ceremonies, music and dance concerts and cultural festivals. More recently she has adapted this expertise to work with the University of Sydney, the Powerhouse Museum and the Buddhist Council of New South Wales.



“Ann was exceptional. She was always good spirited with a ready smile, generous with her time, and knowledgeable.”
